Grizzly and black bear sightings in the Elk Valley

May 15.  Grizzly bears have been reported on Cypress Drive in Sparwood. Black bears are getting into unsecured garbage at Fernie Mobile Home Park and on Dicken Road.  A sow and cub were seen by the entrance of the Cemetary Bypass Trail in Fernie.

We have chosen to live in bear country.  Lets work together to keep our community safe for bears and peolple.  Bring your garbage indoors and remember to take down your bird feeders during bear season.
